The group released their latest single and video Nerea featuring Amos and Josh the songs running theme is about abortion and addresses Nerea pleading with her not to abort her unborn child as she does not know whom he or she will grow up to be, the lyrics are beautifully written heartwarming and highlights a major social issue. The video is directed by Enos Olik a long standing collaborator of the group the song is highly reminiscing of singles such as Coming Home of which shows that although the group has matured they are rooted in creating music that can surely be filled under the greats of Africa.

    Nice song..
    Its an era where abortion seems and feels like a last option to save a career or maybe avoid family conflicts as a result of early pregnancies. Wild parties, matches and other wild escapades are just some of the places unprotected sex takes place that leave the participants at risk of early, unexpected pregnancies. It doesn’t matter the circumstances Nereah gets pregnant, the facts remains that abortion is wrong and it equals murder unless the mother’s life is at risk or medical practitioneers deem it as a last option.
